Disasters management - 05.09.2013

Get funded to set up urban resilience plans to face catastrophic events both natural and manmade
With its program “100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge”, the Rockefeller Foundation proposes you to develop urban resilience plans to face disasters and get funds for their implementation.

Unplanned urban spreading may multiply deprived areas, overload transportation and infrastructure systems and make thousands of people vulnerable to dangers such as floods, fires, terrorist attacks and financial crises. According to United Nations, today 50% of the world’s population lives in urban areas; by 2050 the number should reach 75%. Imagine what would be the impact of natural or manmade disasters on such context!

That is why the foundation launches “100 Resilient Cities Centennial Challenge”. Thank to this program, selected cities will better face disasters and elaborate  strategies in this purpose.

One hundred cities will be selected and benefit from financial and technical support to develop resilience plans.

Registrations to this program are opened until 23 September 2013. Applications can be sent in English, French, Spanish or Portuguese. Only municipalities with over 50 000 inhabitants are invited to apply.
